Jenna Freedman

My undergraduate degree is in theater and I have a Master's in Library and Information Science. I'm currently enrolled in another Master's Program with an emphasis on digital humanities. My research and practice center on zines and activist librarianship. I write and present on those and other topics and co-founded project called Radical Reference and #critlib.
